it is two pm in moscow you're watching r t a marina josh welcome to the program a peaceful sit in to support it gets ousted president morsi has turned deadly with forty two people understood to have been killed the muslim brotherhood claims police and the army used live bullets and tear gas on campaigners during dawn prayers outside the republican guard headquarters but the military blames the gunfire on terrorists saying that five people have died artie's lucic often have discussed this earlier with our middle east correspondent policy or. re situation here in egypt is deteriorating and deteriorating fast the entire it nasa city where these clashes happened is in lockdown the military has closed off the whole area and as a result ambulances are unable to reach the injured inside we are hearing that a makeshift hospital has been say tad eyewitnesses there saying that bodies are
literally being laid out on the ground doctors also telling us that many of the people have been shot in either the chest or they hid and many of them have actually been fired at from behind now among the dead is at least one woman and five children including a six month old baby these reports to correlate with what we're hearing from the muslim brotherhood who says that it was holding peaceful dorna praise it was holding a peaceful sitting in front of the military barracks where it is believed that president morsy is being held when the group was suddenly fired on by the army and as a result the brotherhood is calling for an uprising it says that this is a massacre it is calling for international intervention to prevent the situation here in egypt from descending to quote in another syria the army has a different version of events they say that protesters stormed the barracks and that armed gunmen and to quote the military terrorists took aim either way certainly live ammunition was used a lot of tear gas and a deadly fatality list that just keeps climbing rough is that the situation we're
escalate either into martial law into some kind of civil war or possibly both both sides now are calling for the protesters to come to the streets we're keeping an eye on this we are concerned that they will be mass demonstrations again today we're hearing from the al-noor party which is the second largest islamised party they have withdrawn from negotiations in light of these killings and this is this is posed a huge setback for the interim president who's been struggling for days to try and create some kind of interim government to manage this country so against this growing violence and this growing anger on the street you have an interim government that simply unable to even establish itself and. certainly the politics are critical here it's an important situation but the problems facing egypt are more than just political aren't they forty percent of this country lives below the bread line which is some three dollars a day one of the biggest criticisms against morsi is that he spent his first year in office consolidating his own power vala been trying to address the economy and
improve the daily lives of people living here and city this is going to have to be one of the issues that this new interim government if it's if it created addresses those who can have long since left trading cairo for quite a sure it's lived this real estate broker panicked job is finding homes for those with cash to pay up front but now she's thinking of closing up shop because business has never been this bad this sort of when you want to launch a new project in real estate everything is put on the whole it stops foreign buyers don't want to come and invest in egypt lack of security lack of parliament lack of unstable governments so. we do nothing but just help the way economists say it's no surprise president morsi was overthrown he spent his first year in office tightening his grip on power rather than trying to rescue the country's floundering economy food prices have rocketed the country cannot pay off its debts to major oil
companies and forty percent of egyptians live below the poverty line on less than three dollars a day on top of that major international investors have pulled out and sold their assets the safest decision in a repartee deteriorating environment for the foreseeable future it looks like egypt will have a government that again is unable to as to policy and as a result unable to provide investors with the confidence that they would need to begin to sing it but here in tokyo square protesters are not sorry the western giants on leaving just how much i owe i thought i already had almost this car leasing business men tells us he's fed up. before morsi was ousted. we're begging for the i.m.f. loan of about four point seven billion dollars a year now we don't want it we're all as business men collectively decided to support the egyptian economy and one day we collected over fifteen billion dollars in donations were a large economy we can rely on ourselves but the facts tell
a different story for each day these demonstrations continue the egyptian economy is forced to cough up another one billion dollars the ripple effect is more insecurity in an already unstable region if there's anyone benefiting from these revolutions it's people right here in tahrir square you can pick up whatever souvenirs ok mix you want from slats to posters to key rings and even a coin code. maggie mohamed used to work as a sales agent but he's company was forced to shut down after mubarak was all stood for two years this has been his office the same spot on his square business isn't brilliant but at least he can put food on the table. i couldn't find a job but after the revolution i came here so i could make a living or i have children and i just want to move. the egyptian flag is waved to both the pro and. it's about the only thing common between the two camps
threatening to take egypt apart but if things don't improve soon the financial lifeblood of the country will be completely drained and whichever flag waving group eventually prevails may find very mishal to celebrate policy r t kyra. now the only going on the rest is unlikely to die down until it gets failing economy is properly addressed and that's what r.t. has been hearing from world affairs journalist neil clark. the political debate needs to go on but the fact is the economy is getting worse millions of egyptians are starving virtually out there i'm employed one in four young people are employed bread pasta going up and it doesn't matter who is in power unless the economic problems we address urgently then these at least on the rest will continue and any government that consoled me secondly it will get the support of the majority of people the trouble what morsi came into out with all these promises he didn't deliver there will be unrest against a group now we've got a new government but the demonstration will continue unless they get
a grip on the economy while r.t.l. trues also in cairo went to find out what exactly is motivating morsi supporters to stand up to the army. a lot of people are saying that it was a popular will the first time and morsy out of office what is your reaction to that actually. first of all i want to say that i am one of the people who went out in the streets and generate twenty five water from a bottle and we believe that. what is happening right now is to get mubarak again and. buy up a spirit in five elections among the last thirty months and we want to proceed with the democratic way of ruling this thing. and now we are being isolated by the military the military of course is trying to live a big portion of the egyptian population there they don't want to hear our voice they are closing t.v. via t.v.
stations and they are arresting people without anything we don't have a constitution that most of the people has approved only six months ago. now correspond true has made her way to the protest or a sit in at nasr city. on the twitter now is reporting on the situation as it unfolds she also managed to speak to a number of people who say they saw what happened who told her that shots were fired at them reportedly with live ammunition and spoke of very tam's to flee to safety follow them on twitter for the latest updates from the area. fugitive whistleblower edward snowden has struck again this time claiming that the n.s.a. is in bed with germany as well as with a number of other countries when it comes to global surveillance while a former cia employee says the partnership is set up in such a way that it can protect top level politicians from annie backlash eve details of
their collaboration become public the revelations undermine berlin's recent furious comments about the extent of america's global spy operation with chancellor merkel accusing the us of cold war tactics snowden's previous revelations involved extensive spying programs run by france and britain well let's get now some reaction from germany and talk to beatrix one stork and election candidate for the alternative for germany party veterans thank you so much for joining us here on r t so how are these recent revelations going down with berlin. well there have been different direct reactions on this somewhere a very surprised some were extremely surprised and others always said we told you we told you so already so if it's there one way or the other what is good to know is that our close ally and friend the united states of america is spying on every german citizen and on the german government and this is what we have to know is an
in between we have friends and partners this should not be usual and i don't want to have the german government be black males or in the danger of being backed by any other country so. expressively. deny this way of making politics and i do see that the german chancellor is not representing the interests of the german people this is what is the main point while you see what's interesting to this german interests what's interesting to look at here is that angle of merkel just not so long ago lashed out of washington for the spying activities and this report obviously directly contradicts what she said earlier so could there be some sort of a collusion then germany to admit or to talk about.
well there dick huge contradictions in all what the government and especially shines on nicholas saying so i do not give so much on the work they are saying it's has been proven so often that they are not telling the truth and the chancellor is not telling the truth to the people this is why we say we have to we need to change even the german government to talk honestly to the people and the next step we have to take is to ask. and expression or some words from the president of the united states to say that he's sorry and to say and sure that he will stop spying on the german people that he will stop spying on the german government and these are words i do expect from our chancellor to hear and all we heard so far the first words were from her speak it was not even by herself so i think we need to change in this in this personality while returning to the possibility of some sort of a collusion there i'd like to ask you this question i mean snowden suggests that
the collaboration was set up in such a way that the political leaders could be protected if the word gets out that is so if the aim of the surveillance activities was noble in catching terrorists why might they want to be protected. well i think it's very obviously it can't be it can't have been the only aim to go for terrorist spying on the german embassy in brussels is not is not has nothing to do with trying to protect from some terroristic acts the german ambassador in brussels will not undertake any terrorist attacks that's ridiculous so we can see that there are some other reasons too for the united states to spy on our politicians as well and so we have to stop this directly and this is what we as a new party alternative for germany want to do we want to speak out for the interests of the people of germany and we do not see the disinterested very good
represented by the government and even not by the opposition at the at the very moment because the opposition the s.p.d. social democratic party has also been in charge and they all knew about this of the over the way of the americans to spy upon the german citizens and the german government ok well on the surface of it germany seems to be angered by the spying activities but let's now take a look at the situation from america's side i mean if germany and the u.s. are such close allies why do you think might washington want to spy in germany what i think they're different different reasons i mean i can i don't know them but it's obviously there are political and economic reasons and if you put it in if you get every bit of information which is profit through the internet then you have all the information you need for economic reasons for business and for political reasons and this is why why i think the german government should stand before the
german people before the german economy and also protect themselves to not be in the danger of being blackmailed by yet by anybody all right that was better expunged election candidate for the alternative for germany party thank you so much for review. brushing of a dodgy surveillance aside europe and the u.s. have some big money to talk about they're about to discuss joining up to create the world's biggest free trade region had we ask whether they will get what they are bargaining for plus. life seem a top feature of the woes when in tough economic times. for ten thousand pounds pay wise it's enough to make british taxpayers had spend their politicians are in line for a half to pay rise details on that just ahead here in our stay with us. i'm
not used to the tundra to freedom my dear. oh. in second grade i ran away from the boarding school with to my friends will be around to the tundra. to the tundra is just mosquitoes practically i don't know how people can live there to get in there no t.v.'s in the tents how can i send my child to boarding school i won't be able to sleep at night after that. they enter a life without knowledge of how to do basic things they don't get out of school. good laboratory. to build needs most sophisticated robots which fortunately doesn't give
a darn about anything tim's mission to teach music creation and why you should care about humans. this is why you should care only. oh come out of this is r.t. coming to life from moscow mali is gearing up for presidential elections later this month the country's first ballot since civil war broke out nearly two years ago the state of emergency which has been in place since january has been lifted ahead of the poll he's kapor you and peacekeepers aided by the our going french intervention forces will help provide security during the election but some local officials say malia will still be hard pressed to hold a credible vote hundreds of thousands of people remain displaced while the country's north where radical islamists were recently driven out is said to be seeing a very fragile peace the reports from the volatile country. these
people from a small village to the west of mali's capital may be muslim. but they also have their very own traditional believes stretching back generations using nuts to help predict the future and influence the weather you know. it's people like these who helped form africa's unique and diverse cultures but it's exactly these times who would have been a trieste of an isolation had the militants who took control of mali's north in the name of radical islam also swept aside the authorities here. a lot hug bar they say they are not muslims i don't like these people and other spiritual groups they think the same way if they find us they'll kill us the french troops intervened in northern mali in january as the insurgency made to push towards the capital two months later paris proclaimed the north liberated but for some
followers of traditional islam that was already too late. twenty three year old silly man from the gower region claims al qaeda linked fighters chopped off his right hand and left food after he and father three and a muslim who prays several times a day refused to join their ranks and. they brought the chair to a squirrel in the center of gower they tied me up they gave me an injection and put a band-aid here brought a knife like this and cut it. however some people from solomon's village claim he's a thief which the radicals punish him for wonder surreal all the imposed. we were against their opinion they don't consider the muslim they have their own interests while travelling to was the north we met no one who sympathizes with the insurgents and their rigid religious views and that even goes for the next generation you want to fight against and why are they bad bad all of them yes they are bad bad for our
country. but when those ringers of shari'a law too cold to the north a significant number of mali ends either join them or help them. some suggest by they while it's militants have capitalized on widespread poverty while others have been drawn in by they slogans it is incomplete now many people who join the radicals understood they were mistaken and they've joined the side of the mali an army to fight against those people are you guys i've read that these people will come back. no they will not come back. or they don't why they will never come back here. because mali and france now here. but front's is drawing much of its bigotry and the very people paris
claims to have driven out steven p. to be very much around the same groups that these noles claimed responsibility for a terror attack on a french strong uranium facility in neighboring new share while the very factors that allowed to their rise in the north proved to be a feeling of injustice and general frustration just to very much evident. right to. carry. that is not a legal matter thanks to the anguish. of research and i don't. know when can we start. this sounding is the missing link to fate richard otieno odyssey from mali. also a look at some other stories from around the world and u.s. officials say the bourne triple seven which crashed at san francisco airport was flying too slowly he also said the crew tried to abort the landing just seconds
before it slammed into the runway killing two of the passengers as a on airlines claims the pilot had little experience of flying the jet remarkably more than three hundred people on board the plane survived the crash. lady and officials now say five bodies have been found after the freight train explosion in quebec dozens more are still missing with a corner spokesperson saying victims may have been vaporized in the intensity of the explosion and fire the town of luck megantic is devastated after the runaway train loaded with fuel derailed and blew out although the cause of the disaster remains unclear. talks are about to start and washington to create the world's largest free trade zone between the u.s. and the e.u. this despite europe's indignation over america's murky surveillance and threats by the french president to bury the deal economist patrick young believes that no
matter what they think of each other right now the deal is vital for both sides. the u.k. in particular of put a great deal of store into the idea of creating a free trade agreement across the atlantic the united states of america under the obama presidency you have been seen to be pretty much anti business and anti free trade also one could say that the obama presidency on a broader basis is ultimately headed towards failure so you've got two prime ministers presidents heads of state who are each unbuckled and they want to create a win win situation it is an incredible opportunity for the frankly currently all full european union predicament canonically to manage to fight back the emerging nations of the world they're the benchmarks and hard to do exports right now if they're going to continue to grow whether this free trade agreement happens or not but ultimately the president of the united states of america and the european union camel to ford in the current economic circumstance where their lunch is being eaten
by the emerging east not to come up with a do now ask anyone in britain who they think deserves a pay raise right now and few are likely to say m.p.'s just about everyone else is being asked to freeze or cut their pay chad lawmakers are in for a massive salary hike from london here's r.t. sarah ferguson. my theme a topsy turvy world when in tough economic times and peace can be in line for ten thousand pound pay rise in the body the first salaries really think. but as with so many things like this inflation here until there's more to the story. it's never that simple of course nothing simple it's easy for the general public the general public has a pay free employees are paid more already they will have a field day they will terrorism if we have
a huge increase when they get in nothing but worse politicians from the prime minister down make bluster and prick claim that the over fifty years any pay rise it's not actually a choice the decision is down to independent body he decide how pay should be set and it says chairman has criticised the party leaders for voicing their opposition prior to an m.p. set their own pay and well we all know how that ended up as members of parliament with. you know. them different independent body. as well that m.p.'s salaries are already now far more than double the average so what do the british public have to say about it will their responses when quite what you might think anyone should be you know should be paid for. if it stops are kind of things where they can. go. away from the job.
to go to the money comes the expenses of. expenses and all of you know extracurricular activities which the make a lot of money for. in the current climate. that yet. well you thought if you called us going on left and sunset there's more people using food banks than any british based on history is extremely sensitive quite understandably even then mention of a pay rise that politicians has prevailed anger and confusion amongst many in the public but in the wake of members expenses scandals this pay rise could all say be linked to an end out fight ending for m.p.'s which many say will be a chance for real with bold and as this debate hopes up even further in the coming days but certainly going to be something to reflect upon.
and a look at the extraordinary life of children who have to adapt to russia's arctic tundra that's after the break stay with us. remember how all the sudden avent card protest group became world famous and then were completely forgotten by next month yeah i'm talking about the feminist punk rock group pussy riot that performed a vulgar anti prayer and one of moscow's most famous orthodox cathedrals one possible reason for their explosive popularity in the media's eyes was revealed recently by a german actress on a book the actress claims a german t.v. channels e.d.f. paid three large undisclosed amount of money to come out on behalf of the activists banned show said on a t.v.
discussion that she doesn't even remember what she said except for wishing well with dealing with their incarceration it would be very odd for an actress to just make up a bribery scandal especially one she was complicit in but it makes you wonder just how many other people may have been given all extra motivation to cry travesty overall i think the most important of what said her public revelation is that she said that you know what it's. a bit dumb when actors talk while politics and i could agree with her more but that's just my opinion. mission free cretaceous free transport judges free. range month free. three stooges free. download free broadcast quality video for your media projects and free media and on to our t. dot com. a
